Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Our Hernando Beach stay here was the most comfortable home away from home we have ever been fortunate enough to rent. The setting is lovely and relaxing. You are surrounded by blue, sparkling water on all sides. The house is beautifully decorated in so many delightful ways and it was a pleasure to discover them all . The furniture is so comfortable and the kitchen very well equipped and organized. The collection of spices and kitchen starter items thoughtfully left for guests were much appreciated. We really enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the parade of birds go by. Loved the pool. Would have used it a lot more if the weather had co-operated. Kerry & John were wonderful hosts and responded promptly and warmly to all our questions. They are wonderful hosts!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Nothing about this property will disappointed. The house has a southern exposure so the pool has full sun and you can watch the sunsets from the balcony. Inside, the house with its many windows, patio doors and mirrors feels very spacious. The house is clean, tastefully furnished and extremely well equipped with anything you might want ....the knives are even sharp! !...rare in a rental.

This part of Florida is called the Nature Coast. There are no beaches but it is great for bird watching , biking (there are many biking trails), hiking ,kayaking and canoeing. The Gulf is a 20 minute kayak paddle away. We saw dolphins twice from the kayak and once from the end of our dock. We rented a canoe one day and paddled with the manatees in the Crystal River. We are not fishermen but often saw fish swimming near and under our dock.

Kerry and John are involved owners who care that you enjoy your stay in their lovely home. They are easily accessible and helpful and super friendly. We enjoyed getting to know them.

Our Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for a month and it was equipped with everything we needed or ever wanted. The owners were so hospitable and told us to call them if we ever needed anything and they made us fill right at home. It was very refreshing to swim in the pool after a long day of scalloping and very relaxing to see the beautiful sunset every evening.We will definitely be going back next year!

Perfect Summer Vacation,

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented the house for a month and we felt right at home. The house had everything we ever needed or wanted. We parked our boat at the dock after scalloping and would jump in the refreshing pool afterwards. Every evening we would go outside to see the beautiful sunset. Thank you John and Kerry for sharing your beautiful house with us and giving us the opportunity to have a much needed relaxing vacation!

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

This was the fourth VRBO we’ve rented in Florida. While all of our experiences have been good this was one we’d like to rent next year. I like to fish and my wife likes the pool. This hit both of our wish lists, but what made it great was the owners went above and beyond. As we researched the area we found that it was a good place to trap blue crabs. When we asked the owners about it, they purchased a trap and sent us a video of a neighbor pulling up blue crabs. We ended up trapping a few every day and topped the week off with a wonderful crab boil. Evening fishing from the dock was great fun due to abundance of species caught and fact that every cast either resulted in a fish or stolen bait. We’d also recommend renting a pontoon from the folks at the end of the channel. It was inexpensive and once anchored we caught three sharks in the first 45 minutes. Water quality is very good and kayaking was enjoyed by all.

Most of the homes you’ll rent are very transactional, with this home you get a concierge. They provided a bicycles, fishing poles, a kayak, and use of the spices and condiment’s that were on hand. I’d rate our experience as extraordinary.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying in Hernando Beach. Fishing, catching scallops and hanging out at the sandbar are some of the fun activities to enjoy. The house was perfect, having a pool to jump in after a long day on the gulf was awesome. It is also very close to a couple of stores and bait shops. Many thanks to John & Kerry, who are great owners to rent from, very nice and accomodating. We can't wait to come back!
